Meet Tom Noonan

DSC_0914EDITED880pxH-827x1024

To coincide with their upcoming auction, CONFLUENCE: THE COLLECTION OF TOM NOONAN, Stair Galleries has published an article by Angus Wilkie which offers a glimpse into the history of Hudson's longstanding (and soon-to-be-missed) Noonan Antiques and the shops beloved owner, Tom Noonan. You can read an excerpt of the article below…
My friend Tom Noonan, an ebullient man of refreshingly unpretentious manner and taste, announced the other day he was closing shop — and no one could quite believe it. “This is a disaster,” lamented a fellow antiques dealer. Without doubt, Tom’s imaginatively tumbled, effortlessly stylish shop at the top-end of Hudson’s fabled Warren Street was one of the most time-warmed and judiciously layered emporiums in town. When Tom started trading in Hudson more than two decades ago, a mere handful of antiques shops graced a sleepy street. An early fixture with a golden eye for layering myriad styles, Tom’s particular furniture medley was always his hallmark. Window displays on Warren welcomed footfall with an alluringly lighthearted Romanticism; inside, the misty glow of darkly lit rooms invited some serious sleuthing.

Click here to continue reading the article on Stair Galleries' website Stair Galleries' May 17th & 18th Auction will be a two-part sale. On Saturday, May 17th, we will feature a single-owner sale, “Confluence: The Collection of Tom Noonan,” followed by jewelry and silver from various collections.

What is Modern Art?
Part One: Modern Art & Modernism

81688

To coincide with their Modern & Contemporary Auctions on March 21, 2014 and June 7, 2014, Lisa Thomas, a specialist in the Fine Arts Department at Stair Galleries, has written the first of a two-part article summarizing the history of modern art. You can read an excerpt of the article below…
We often use the term Modern Art here at Stair Galleries while looking at paintings and objects, cataloguing for upcoming sales, or when talking with buyers and sellers about works of art. But what does Modern Art really mean? And how is it different from Modernism, Postmodern, and Contemporary Art? In two short essays we’ll look at the definitions for these art historical terms and look at some examples of each style or period.

Modern Art is a term used to describe a period of Art History extending roughly from the 1860s to the 1970s. The term denotes the style and philosophy of the art produced during that time. The roots of the Modern Art movement are found in the work of late 19th Century artists like Van Gogh, Cezanne and Gaugin, whose training and early careers were based in a traditional style of painting. At the end of the 19th Century, many artists began to move away from realistic narrative in subject matter and style, and move toward a more abstract style of painting that addressed their new aesthetic ideas.
